Julie Linden Penharlow

Personal Description:


To a wonderful, creative, generous woman, my mother, who taught me just how exciting and wonderful this world is. Thank you for doing the genetic testing when I knew you were so sick and your life would shortly end. You gave me many, many wonderful gifts, however, urging me to then get genetic tested as well, was a great gift of love and hope for your daughter. I miss you every day – and because I was able to make the good decision to have my ovaries removed – I hope I will live a long, happy life – and teach my children what a fantastic, strong, caring mother you were

Personal Description:

Julie was first diagnosed with breast cancer at age 33. She continued to live a full life, re-marrying, having another child, getting a college degree, traveling, seeing her grandson born and her youngest child enter college, until her passing due to ovarian cancer at age 60.

Taxotere for breast cnecar is combined with different drugs than for prostate cnecar and although hair loss does occur in men, I cannot find evidence for this being permanent.
